Again, because longstanding WriteWorder Samantha Tonge has been published many, many times in the short story world, and if you want to read her tips for writing for The People's Friend click through to her website. Sam has been a stalwart of the short fiction groups on WriteWords and she really knows what she's talking about.
But Sam's now got a double celebration. Just as her collection of feelgood short stories Sweet Talk is published by AlfieDog, and hits the e-book shelves and a sweetshop or two as well, she's just signed a contract for her debut novel.
Doubting Abbey - yes, you read that right - will be published by Harlequin's imprint CarinaUK, just in time for Christmas. To get a taste of this romantic comedy, click through to Sam's Doubting Abbey blog.
And don't forget that WriteWords can help you to follow in Sam's footsteps.
